​Chesapeake Bay

This song is by Lonnie Donegan and appears…

'Round the bend I hear the chuggin' of the steamboat dear
Heading here for this pier
You'll catch it if you hurry don't you ever fear
It's that Old Dominion line
We'll she seems real pretty as she hugs the shore
Heading for Baltimore
Everybody's yearning
To hear the paddles churnin'
She's the Queen of the Chesapeake Bay

Come on Miss Nancy put your best dress on
Come on Miss Nancy 'fore that steamboat's gone
The banjos are strumming the same old tune
Up on the deck there's a place to spoon
Settle down close 'neath the silvery moon
Sailing on the Chesapeake Bay

Come on Captain we must catch that boat
We can't swim and listen we can't float
The banjos are strumming the same old tune
Up on the deck there's a place to spoon
Settle down close 'neath the silvery moon
Sailing on the Chesapeake Bay
